Internet group to consumers: Think security

A coalition of technology companies and others doing business on the Internet
have released a list of nine steps they believe consumers and remote workers
should take to protect themselves and keep their computers from being used as
weapons on the Internet.

The Internet Security Alliance's (ISA) recommendations, published in its new
"Common Sense Guide for Home and Individual Users," won't be a surprise to most
company system administrators, but some of the steps may be new to many Internet
users, according to speakers at a Thursday press conference. In July 2002, the
Internet Security Alliance, which represents about 2,500 technology and Internet
companies, also released its "Common Sense Guide for Senior Managers," and both
guides are available at http://www.isalliance.org/.

The isaalliance site has documents with links to information and insights some 
of us probably wouldnt have otherwise.
